KEYNOTE - Small But Mighty: The Untapped Potential of Mid-Size Buildings

While regulations and policy discussions often focus on large buildings, much of New York City’s building stock is made up of mid-size commercial and residential buildings, both of which have a unique set of needs when it comes to electrification and decarbonization. This year’s keynote will focus on how to put the right tools and resources in the hands of building owners and contractors, enabling them to be real drivers of change in the market.
